All 1250 tickets were sold.

$30,000 in prize money was awarded to various buyers from all over the country.

Over $27,000 was given out to various charities under our 4 pillars which the Knights set up.


 

Pro-Life

Knights Council 10909 was the lead gift for a 4D Ultrasound donated to Essential Pregnancy Services.  We partnered with EPS and the Nebraska Supreme Council to provide women the opportunity to see their babies before they were born.  Studies show that 80% of women who see their ultrasound choose to keep the baby.

 

Education

The Knights had started 4 one-time $500 scholarships to 8th graders to help with tuition to a Catholic High School.  With the Calendar Club, we were able to offer 4 renewable $500 scholarships to students for every year they attend a Catholic High School.  These scholarships are based on their faith, acts of charity, and essays.

 

This year’s winners were: 

Micah Fullinfaw - Omaha Skutt High School

Theresa Howard - Omaha Skutt High School

Adam Lierz - Omaha Skutt High School

Allie Lierz - Omaha Skutt High School

  

Vocations

Our priests are the greatest gift given to us by God.  Saint Pope John Paul II wrote in 2004, “without the priest, there is no Eucharist.  Without the Eucharist, the Church simply does not exist.”  With that in mind, we were able to help vocations and support of our priest in different ways.

  • Contributed to the well-being of two seminarians
  • Contributed to the financial stability of a well-designed vocations camp called Camp Virtus de Veritas.
  • Support St. Wenceslaus’s own Vocations Committee
  • Support the Archdiocese Vocations Program
  • Support of University of Nebraska-Omaha Newman Center

 

Community Outreach

The Knights Council always wants to be of service to our parish community, but also the great Omaha community.  This year we were able to help several local charities by giving them approximately $400 to help in their ministries.  We selected in 2017 to help 15 different organizations that had been the St. Wenceslaus Charities of the Month.

2019 Calendar Club Donations

3rd year of Knights of Columbus 10909 Calendar Club ticket sales

All 1250 tickets were sold.

$30,000 in prize money was awarded to various buyers from all over the country.

Over $29,000 was given out to various charities under our 4 pillars which the Knights set up.

 

Pro-Life

Knights Council 10909 again helped Essential Pregnancy Services this year.  We were able to support financially, physically, and spiritually to the construction of a chapel at their Maple Village Location.  New communication system to allow the EPS staff to receive phone calls and text messages on a 24/7 basis.  Currently, this is available only during hours when the “phones” are staffed – which results in MANY missed opportunities . . . . particularly during “after hours” when these calls are likely to be most prevalent and necessary.  Further, current text capability is almost non-existent and this will bring their ability to serve their constituents in line with the more commonly utilized text communication methods. Will also ensure that communications received and sent are HIPAA compliant.

 

Bethlehem House received a donation to help with unforeseen capitol expenses with their HVAC unit, patio and outdoor repairs.  We also supported their general fund.

 

Vocations

Our priests are the greatest gift given to us by God.  Saint Pope John Paul II wrote in 2004, “without the priest, there is no Eucharist.  Without the Eucharist, the Church simply does not exist.”  With that in mind, we were able to help vocations and support of our priest in different ways.

  • Contributed to the financial stability of a well-designed vocations camp called Camp Virtus de Veritas.
    • Camp Virtus de Veritas (V2) has been so successful they have added a second week of camp
      • Our own Fr. Taylor is the Chaplain for one of the camps.
  • Support St. Wenceslaus’s own Vocations Committee
  • Support to St. Wenceslaus’s Youth and Young Adult Ministry with training staff members and sending youth to Steubenville Conference

Community Outreach

This year's charitable giving led us to give back to others in our community.  We are able to have Knights families give back to our brothers and sisters at the Stephen Center.  We are going to purchase, deliver and serve Godfather’s Pizza at the Stephen Center four (4) to five (5) times in 2019.  This might seem “insignificant”, but this is an uplifting act of love and outreach – and it has resounding impact on our brothers and sisters at the Stephen Center.

 

Spirit Catholic Radio received donations to have help with unforeseen capitol expenses regarding a power facility in Gretna.  Donations will help this need as well as help support their Challenger Club during the Spring Fundraiser.  We are truly blessed and grateful for Spirit Radio for bring the Catholic message on faith, hope, and love to people when their broadcast reach.

 

Hearts Connecting Hope Nigeria received donations to help with the construction of classrooms and teacher's living quarters.  We also provided funds for student scholarships.
